I am bout to lose my mind. My husband searched on line and found that this car had a recall on it for the same ... Read More
I had the same problem on a 2000 Sebring Conv. I replaced the entire control unit - heat/blower/ac knob unit. Bought a replacement unit at a salvage yard for $20. Took me about 2 hrs. including pulling the part from the salvage yard. I think others had paid $350 for a new replacement unit from Chrysler. Also had the resistor problem along with the fan unit. Replace two resistors and finally ... Read More
eroosejx00: On the window of my 2006 Sebring attached to vinyl convertible top, i used Household Amazing Goop, purchased at Walmart for like 4 or 5 dollars. The vinyl was coming apart from window in most places, and window would shake while i was driving. The top part of the window was not a problem , so i just used that goop on the lower part of the vinyl top where ... Read More
I found no successful methods and ended up replacing the top after the car flooded (water runs into a reservoir behind the back seat and sits if the drains are plugged (as mine were), causing the floor pan to repeatedly fill up...ugh!) I found a new canvas top (installed) at a local top shop for $1100 - can probably find for less if you shop around. (PS i replaced the whole ... Read More
i just bought a 2000 sebring jx convertible and my back window is in with gorilla tape. were you ever able to find what works to seal the back window.
Ironically enough, its also Hunter Green, but with a black top, black leather interior, and the gold rims as well. I've had this car since 2001 and its been great to me the whole time I've owned it, and now has 71,000 miles, but I have to sell it soon, and honestly I do not want to. However, my son is about to turn 16 and one of the two cars ... Read More
I have a 2000 Chrysler Sebring convertible; it would rain inside of the car whenever I tried to wash it or use it in the rain. I had to replace all 5 major rubber window waterproofing seals on the car (one for the main front window, 4 for each driver and passenger front windows and rear windows. Then it still rained since the convertible top would not closed down completely where ... Read More
Interesting....real time troubleshooting assistance. My neighbors 2001 Chrysler Sebring just did the same thing. After checking a few things I came in an searched "starting" on this thread. Replaced the blown 20 amp starter/fuel pump fuse in teh engine compartment and the car started right up. I assume the fuel pump was the cause and may be on its last legs.
I have a 2000 Sebring JX Convertible. I've already dumped over ten grnad into the car. Now when stopping at stop signs or red light, the car sputters and likes to give out. I contacted Chrysler, and I was transferred to a call center in Mumbai, India. Finding an English speaking employee was harder than trying to get my car fixed. The dealer claims it can be a number of things, ... Read More
My 2000 chrysler sebring JXI convertible horn won't sound when I depress the proper area in the center of the steering wheel. But it does sound when I lock-arm alarm with the remote key fob. Anybody know why this is?
I have a 2000 Chrysler Sebring JXI Convertable.(160,000 miles) My A/C won't turn off and if i turn the blower on a lower setting or off, it will freeze up. I know that the A/C compressor is constantly on, and ive tried pulling the A/C fuse out, relays but it won't turn off. (i did turn off the a/c button). Even if i am using the heater, it will eventually freeze ... Read More
i have a chrysler sebring, 2000 JXI convertable.160,000 miles. The engine has knocked a little for a couple monthes. but then i tried plus gasoline instead of regular. the engine light came on a day after and the knocking got worse, its now somewhat noticable, especially when i speed up. Do you think that the gas is linked to this?
I have a 2000 Chrysler Sebring lXI and the last year and a half has been nothing but hell. the engine light stays on, that sound in the morning after a cold start up sounds like there rocks inside the engine. i have spent over 2,000 in the past year alone and I am just done with the car. I stopped taking it to the dealer cause it was at least ... Read More

I've had the same intermittent problem with my 2003 Sebring Limited convertible. Early 2005, dealer replaced the multi-function switch on the steering column. This fixed the problem. However, just last night the instrument cluster went dark again. This morning it was lit up fine. Looks like it's time to see the dealer again for another muti-function switch replacement. Looks like Daimler Chrysler switch is designed for short life.
Eventually the cluster stayed dark. I ended up bringing the car to the dealer since my mechanic couldn't fix it. The dealer replaced a module behind the dash and that worked for about a week. Long story short: 4 more trips to the clueless dealer who ended up replacing the entire instrument cluster--cost me $800 and a lot of aggrevation. BTW: Chrysler is no longer a member of the Big 3. ... Read More

I've had my JXI for 3 years, it has 60,000 miles on it. Lately its been running hotter than normal, specifically when in stop and go traffic and low speed situations. I need to turn the heat on to keep it from overheating. It overheated once so I pulled over let it cool down then it ran fine, but it ran at a higher temp than normal. Strange thing is it ...

My 2000 Chrysler Sebring LXi will not start. Its sounds like it will turn over and all lights are on but it will not start. I had the same problem about 6 months ago and it turned out to be the "crankshaft monitor." The garage I had it towed to yesterday could not find anything wrong with it other than they "thought" it needed a tune up....which they esitmated at around ... Read More
I own a used 2000 Sebring luxury. My dash lights don't come on (I already turn the nob....it does not work) Can some one tell me what the problem could be. Also, my vehicle was collecting water and it actually overflow into back floor of the vehicle, damaging my receiver under the passenger seat. Any one knows how much does it cost to replace the amp. Chrysler claims that they are ... Read More
Sebring convertibles are notorious for this problem. The wiring lead to the rear window heating element is strung as tight as a banjo string. Chrysler must have saved about a hundredth of a cent in wire costs. After a while, the metal tab that is glued to the window pops off. Check and see if it is dangling around behind the head liner. There are aftermarket conductive adhesives that will work ... Read More
Hi, I have a Sebring Convertible (year 2000) and I lost the ignition key together with the remote control. It was the only key I had. I live in Hungary and the only one Chrysler dealer in my country is extremely expensive. Can any of you help me on how to get the pin code or a new working key? I have all the owner papers to prove my ownership of ... Read More
For a while I heard a noise that I can only describe as a rotating type of sound eminating from the front. It seemed to be most audible when the car was coasting (slowing down) after reaching 30 or more miles and hour and my foot was removed from the gas peddle. No one seemed to acknowledge the sound as a problem. said all convertibles sound like that. Put it in ... Read More

Recently, my Check Engine light came on my 1995 Sebring (90K miles currently) and it had an extremely erratic idle with coughing, jerking & sputtering. It turned out that oil had leaked into the spark plugs. The valve covers, plugs & wires were replaced, but the problem continued, and eventually the car would completely stall at idle, and sometimes even going on the highway. One of the automotive garages replaced both ... Read More
I have a 2000 Chrysler Sebring LXi w/ abs brakes. I've spent about $500 at Brake Check getting my brakes replaced, cleaned, new hardware, etc. and it is STILL making this screeching (think fingernails on a chalkboard) and a rubbing/scraping noise. It is also making that metal on metal noise while driving (usually at 35 mph with the windows down) and screeches more when I apply the brakes. I was hoping ... Read More

We purchased a loaded leftover '99 JXi In April, 2000, and have had very few problems with it. Our biggest problem is who gets to drive it, the wife or me. Living in New England with our winters, the cloth top is down every chance we get. Anything above 45 degrees is fair game to put it down. The top and heater have been trouble-free and at 59K miles, the top ... Read More
Bought my 2001 Sebring Sedan LXI in July 2001. Loved it from the first time I saw it in 2000. Several irritating problems though: 1.) 2-Months old - Rattle under middle of car. 5* Dealer tightened but every time there is a temperature change w/ weather (warm to cold) rattle comes back. 2.) 4-Months old - Whinning/Humming Noise coming from front end (transmission) dealer says not transmission. Replaced rt/frnt bearing hub ... Read More
Similar to dianall, I purchased a used 2000 JXI with a little more than 13K miles. Have noticed the creaking and crunching under the left front when driving over changes in grade and while turning. Dealership never heard the noise while under warranty but also replaced the control arms on the left side, the stabilizer links, etc. Suspect struts too - will be taking it in for that noise, brakes (an ...

I bought a brand new (leftover) 2001 Chrysler Sebring in Nov. 2001. It was a quiet ride...for about 2000 miles. Dealt with a rattle under the middle of the car which was remedied after 2 visits by tightening exhaust. Around 4500 miles noticed a loud creaking noise in the front end when turning. Have been back five times since. So far the Five Star Chrysler Dealer service dept has replaced the ... Read More
